Software-Defined HyperStore 6.0 Transforms the Data Center with Industry-Leading Automation and Proactive System Intelligence
San Mateo, Calif. – April 12, 2016 – Cloudian, Inc., the leader in software-defined smart data storage and the only fully S3-compatible object storage provider, has released Cloudian HyperStore 6.0, the newest version of its flagship object storage solution. HyperStore 6.0 incorporates innovative automation for data storage management so enterprises and solution providers can simply and cost-effectively manage petabyte-scale data volumes. With its enhanced data management features, including unique proactive repair, and Amazon S3 cross-region replication for disaster recovery, as well as smart storage analytics, HyperStore 6.0 transforms the data center for a fraction of the cost of other object storage offerings.
HyperStore 6.0 Key Features:
• Durability @ Scale: AWS S3 cross-region replication for disaster recovery or compliance needs; proactive repair; dynamic and automated object routing; proactive autocorrect
• Operations @ Scale: add nodes on the fly; reduce your operations management as you grow nodes; non-disruptive rolling upgrades; automatic service recovery
• Tuning @ Scale: built-in storage analytics; manage clusters with simple, drillable, visual management console; object locator
• 100 percent S3-compatible storage for one cent per gig per month
“As enterprises reach petabyte scale data levels, operational costs can quickly exceed capital costs—not only can the physical storage become untenable, but also the resource cost to manage and protect the valuable business data. Data growth isn’t slowing down anytime soon, but we can find a better way to manage them,” said Michael Tso, CEO and co-founder, Cloudian. “Software-defined HyperStore 6.0 automates the whole data management and protection process. With full S3 compatibility, it ensures your data is stored efficiently and protected whether on premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid. Enterprises can keep operating budgets flat, or reduce them, while freeing up their IT department talent to help advance the business goals.”
“When you’re dealing with petabytes of data, your storage management requirements grow as your data grows,” said Amita Potnis, senior research analyst, storage systems, IDC. “Many end-users are experiencing this first hand, and it’s now a necessity to automate storage operations at scale. With HyperStore 6.0, enterprises gain durability and automated operational management at scale to simplify and reduce their operating cost.”
Global Micro, South Africa’s most experienced service provider delivering cloud services for over 15 years across three data center locations, is one of many customers that values HyperStore’s unlimited scale, efficient data protection and simple and always-live data management. Global Micro has been positive about the benefits it has received from its implementation of HyperStore.
“Data durability and service reliability are absolute requirements and key to our customers’ satisfaction,” said J.J. Milner, managing director, Global Micro. “We chose HyperStore because it offers the durability at scale that we need, while still being easy to manage so we operate efficiently, providing our business with the greatest revenue potential.”
